Autumn holidays at Lake Achensee

When the early morning mist rises like a curtain, and the forests make an entrance costumed in colours from golden yellow to rusty red, and the gentle breeze over the lake is the prompter, nature at Lake Achensee has transformed into a stage. Autumn in Tirol's Sports & Vitality Park puts the spotlight on a natural spectacle that provides the scenery for the most beautiful plays.

Such a magical time of year, when Tirol's largest lake becomes a colourful stage with our visitors in the starring role: It's curtain up for your autumn holidays at Lake Achensee, a holiday destination with tradition. The lake, which lies beautifully nestled between the Karwendel and Rofan mountains, has attracted visitors since time immemorial. What makes this region so popular? Is it the picturesque setting or the combination of mountains and the lake, boasting a huge variety of recreational activities? Probably both. What fans of the Achensee region appreciate most is the pristine natural scenery and the diverse natural landscapes featuring an ensemble of water, meadows and rocks.

Playing outside

Tirol's Sports & Vitality Park offers plenty of sporting pursuits. You can conquer the mountains around Tirol's largest lake by cable car or by using your own muscle strength. The hiking trail network extends over 500 kilometres. Both the Nature Park Karwendel and the Rofan mountains boast a magnificent scenery.
